So I get back from holiday to find Radio 1 have been f*****g about with the schedule again. There is no longer a dance show on a Saturday night (the main dance/clubbing night) - Judge Jules has been moved from his sat evening slot to 1am sat morning and the essential mix is now on a friday too (not so bar). Dance Anthems has been moved from Sunday to 11pm on a Friday.
Friday nights - Now all Dance music from Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Dave Pearce, Judge Jules and The Essential Mix.
Sat nights - Now all black music (pretty much the same as 1 extra). Trevor Nelson takes Jules place (which means he can finally play his music rather than the general stuff he had to play before). Westwood remains unchanged.
Sunday nights - Now for teenagers who can get help with their periods or lack of pubic hair. (Annie Mac and Kelly Osbourne - wtf).
It seems Radio 1 have pretty much shit all over Dance Anthems which was more of a general show anyone could listen to/request a track - now at 11am on a friday.
Now when I come in from a night out on Saturdays I get to listen to the 1 extra take over which guess what - plays the same shit as 1 extra.
It makes no sense to have whole evenings dedicated to a certain genre (let alone an entire station - 1 extra, but thats another rant), I used to enjoy listening to Pete Tong on a Friday then a bit of Westwood.
